Arthur believes it will take another two years for Cummins's body to mature
Sydney, July 3 (ANI): Australia coach Mickey Arthur has said that young teenage pace sensation Pat Cummins will face injuries as he grows into his body.
It is his third serious injury in the past 18 months, having been troubled by back stress fractures and a serious foot complaint.
Arthur believes it will take another two years for Cummins's body to mature following his premature exit from the UK tour with a side strain problem.
"It's disappointing him coming back and then picking up another injury but we're just going to have to live with that for another couple of years until he gets stronger and his body is used to the workloads," Arthur said.
"We've just got to keep giving him the quality opportunities because he's going to be very, very good," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying.
Cummins' latest injury shows Australia's problems with keeping fast bowlers on the track and renewed arguments about training methods.
Former pacers believe that the current crop of young bowlers need to bowl more overs in matches to harden their bodies.
"Hopefully he'll be ready for the Twenty20 World Cup (in Sri Lanka in September), expose him to bowling in the sub-continent a little bit and we know he's proficient in our conditions," Arthur said of Cummins. (ANI)
